Patriotic Populists Guard it With
out Pay Against Churchill's
Citizens of the State Offer to Come
to Their Relief With Funds.
The situation at the penitentiary is
this, Warden Leidiglund the employees
under him have remained at their posts
for over two months without a cent of
pay, trying to protect the SKXl.CXK) that
Churchill, Kussell and Ikenier have de-
l termined. law or no law. to capture.
The board of supplies met the other
h day and refused to make the estimates
' required by law and the penitentiary
r- is without funds, but every appointee
stands at his post, and is giving a deaf
ear to all blandishments and all offers
of money from lieemer. They guard
the prisoners, and keep Al lieemer,
Churchill and company out.
Meantime nearly all the prisoners
are idle and cannot be put to work, for
the want of a boiler to start the ma
chinery, the cost ly boilers which Broatch
bought of Dorgan being condemned y
the inspector and their use forbidden.
Churchill and the board w ill not ap
prove a voucher for a boiler unless Al.
Ueeiner is paid his !?., WO salary and 40
cents a day for the maintenance of the
i This state of affairs being generally
known, some patriotic citizens propose
to furnish a boiler. The moment it is
put in and the machinery started, men
ttand ready to hire all the convicts and
put them to work. Hundreds of hon
est citizens, in different parts of the
state, republicans, democrats and popu-
lists are getiug hot under the collar,
being irritated beyond endurance by
the prolonged and persistent attempt of
of the state house junta to make an
other penitentiary steal in violation of
all law and in open day light and they
are signifying their intention to stand
by liov. Holcomb and arden Leidigh.

ends to put in charge of the jcnten-

"Didn't you ride in a hack or a car

There Is no name given of the guard
and no receipt from the hack driver at
' tached to the voucher. Mr. lieemer, as
the evidence shows, put the man on a
street car and unaccompanied by any
one, took him to the court house.
Warden Leidigh's bills for this service
are 05 cents. The books of the. peni
tentiary show scores of steals like this,
and yet Churchill and company are de
termined to force this man back into
the control of the penitentiary. How
much of that SHJO.OUO will be left after
he gets his hands on it ?

THE FREE COINAGE OF SILVER.
Why Men Who Believe in Fiat
Money Constantly Demand it.
Sound Economics From the Chair
man of the Populist National
In his ply to Col. Norton in regard
to the necessity of free coinage of silver
Chairman Taubencck says:
In your reply to my illustration with
the, bushel of wheal you say:
"As to the case of the India farmer
who in 185)2 got 51 cents more for his
wheat than the American farmer, we
think there is a screw loose in the logic
"Now what we want to know is this: j
Why the deuce did not the American
farmer exchange his bushel of wheat
for an ounce of the American miner's
silver, take it direct to Indiaand getjthe mim mirRi,P. of sovereigns, and
'1.37 worth of that legal lender money
in India"? In that way he would have
received as much as the India farmer.
It would have liealen the Liverpool
game all hollow; and it is useless for us
to say that had such a real opportunity
existed there are plenty of enterprising
Americans of the Vanderbiltstripe who
would hav e caught onto it instanter."
During the campaign of 18SM we had
more requests for information, on this
identical point, than for all others com
bined and so far as I know, not a single
populist paper Ins ever given a correct
answer to this query. I
Suppose that in 1X!2 you had had one j
bushel of wheat and sold it for an ounce i
of silver worth NJ cents, then shipped
the silver to India, had it coined into .

lion? Where would your profit come ;
in, Colonel? Von would have received
as much less for your bushel of wheat
as it would have cost you to ship your
silver to and from India. I will admit
that if rniH-es were legal tei der money
as they are in India, then you would
have made a profit, hut you know this
is not the case.

c. unae nations, an export bounty to
the extent of the difference between the
coin and bullion price of silver.
Suppose a wheat grower of the north
west and one from Argentine, meet in
Liverpool, each with one thousand
bushels of wheat. They sell their wheat,
for the same price and receive their pay
in gold. The wheal grower from Ar
gentine takes his gold and buys silver
bullion, worth 05 cents per ounce; on
his arrival home his government -says,
"Let me have your silver; I will coin
and add 04 cents to every ounce and
return it, w hich w ill double the price of
your wheat." Hut our wheat grower in
the northwest returns with Ins gold,
because our government tells him "you
need not bring any silver home. 1 will
not coin it."
Suppose a cotton planter of the south
and one from Mexico should meet in
Livei'pool,each with 100 bales of cotton ?
Trie transaction would result to the
disadvantage of our planter as it would
with our wheat grower.
Again suppose that a wool grower of
the west and one from South America
were to meet in lJoston or New York,
each with 5,000 pounds of woolV Our
wool grower would have to re' urn homo
with only one half as much monky to
pay debts and taxes as his competitor
from South America.
Don't you see, Colonel, that our fann
ers are only receiving the gold price of
silver bullion for their staple products,
while their competitors in silver stand
ard countries are receiving the coin or
mint price of silver for their'n; that the
demonetization of silver here has the
same effect as paying an export bounty
to the farmers in silver using nations ?
How long can our planters and farm
ers exist when compelled to cultivate
two acres, raise two bushels of wheat,
two bales of cotton, while (heir compet
itors in silver standard countries culti
vate but one acre, raise but one bushel
of wheat.one bale of cotton and do only
half as much work, arid yet receive the
same amount of monky with which to
pay debts and taxes.
Senator Jones in his speech during
the extra session of congress, page .T.I2,
"F.very decline in tiie gold price of
silver bullion is a premium-' a bounty- -given
to the producer of wheat und cot
ton in India over the American farmer
and cotton planter in the price of those
On the same point Senator Jones
i notes from Mr. i.agehot, for many
years editor of the London Economist.
"The necessary effect of a depreciation
ot silver as agauitt gold is to give a
t,oin,ty m exports from Indiaand other
silver using countries to England. An
English merchant can now buy many
! more rupees than he formerly could with
therefore iie can import from India,
though prices at Calcutta are not at a
level at which it would have paid him
to operate if he had not had that novel
facility of getting rupees."
Near the close of your reply you say:
"We, with you, say let us have free
and unlimited coinage of silver. Hut
we say let us strike still farther and
deeper at the evils which beset our pro.
gress and prosperity hs a nation.-'

The decadance of the republican
party was never more noticeable than
when the long advertised republican
orator from Kansas arrived at Fuuke's
opera house on Thursday night. The
lower part was idled but there were only
a few in the gallery. The "orator'' in
dulged in the most fierce denunciation
of the larmers of Kansas and Nebraska
for leaving the republican party. There
was .but little said upon the principles
of government to which the attention
of the people has been drawn in these
late years. The Inteligence of the audi
ence may be gagued from the nature of
the sentiments that drew applause, if
populists were denounced there were
cheers, when the Grand Old l'arty was
was mentioned there was tremcndouB
hand clapping and shouts, but when the
"orator" undertook to discuss principles,
there was silence. That was above their
capacity. Poor old g. o. p!
